Fecal matter sent to newspaper editor

Saturday, January 12, 2013 - Updated: 5:50 PM

WHITE PLAINS (AP) -- Police say someone mailed fecal matter to the home of an editor for a New York newspaper that has published the names and addresses of residents with handgun permits.

White Plains police Commissioner David Chong says a suspicious package that brought out the Westchester County bomb squad Thursday turned out to contain "non-toxic fecal matter."

He said Friday the package was sent to a Journal News employee. The newspaper identified her as CynDee Royle, who's editor and vice president/news.

Last month, The Journal News published on its website a clickable map identifying Westchester and Rockland county residents with handgun permits. That drew heavy criticism from gun owners nationwide.

Some posted online the addresses of Journal News staffers.
